Waldegg Castle was built between 1682 and 1686 by Schultheiss Johann Viktor I of Besenval. Since 1963, the castle is owned by the canton of Solothurn. With ist gardens and the museum's new permanent exhibition the baroque country seat is an important testimony of the period when patrician families ruled and the French ambassador resided in Solothurn. Waldegg Castle is not just a museum, but also a centre for culture and understanding of the canton of Solothurn. The facilities are also available for seminars, receptions and private occasions.
